are they going to solve the deficit problem and also increase job creation?" and i'd like to hear that explained clearly, because they have two very different philosophies. third, i think that if the debates do their job, we're going to be able to answer the question, "what are the sacrifices either one is going to ask us to make?" >> such as reforming social security, medicare, higher taxes, lower taxes? >> yes. and on the table are all sorts of things that many people value a great deal and we may not be able to afford anymore. so should we have deductibility for second home mortgages? should we have deductibility for high-cost homes? should we have health insurance coverage provided by employers continue to be deductible? if so, for whom, should it be for all? and should we raise the age of entitlement, if so, to what level?" when someone says that about social programs, i want to also hear the answer to the question, "what are you doing with military spending? and how do you justify the tradeoff? we've gotta get the revenue someplace. where are you willing to cut? and if not, why not? when y
the deficit by ending the war and nev -- war in afghanistan and using the money saved to bring down the deficit. the simple term for that is that we will no longer be spending money for that war. we will no longer be taking money pile up in one place and moving it to another. the use of language is very bad on this. it even was last night, when he spoke not from a prepared plan, but just from talking points. i found that when romney would offer something specific, except for a few points that barack obama had repeatedly used in speeches about where he was saving money or will the health benefits were coming from, he would not back up his statements with hard information. i found that in the speech he was making today. >> a tweet from marji. donald on our independent line. is that clarksville, tennessee? maryland? >> virginia. ok, first of all let me go back to what the man said a few minutes ago. common sense would tell you that if you are spending money where it is not needed, then that money could be used to spend on other programs, and the money that you are not spending on those
tax cut. what i have said is i won't put in place a tax cut that adds to the deficit. that's part one. number two, i will not reduce the share paid by high-income individuals. and number three, i will not under any circumstances raise taxes on middle income families. i will lower taxes on middle income families. >> he's going to get rid of the estate tax, mr. mayor, which aims directly at the top rate. the people who have a quarter million bucks and want to leave it to their kids. it's nor the very rich. he wants to lower the top rate from 35% to 28% for the richest people in the country. he wants to take the corp rate rate from 35% to 25%. >> clearly at that stage mr. obama should have turned to him and said you are not telling the american people the truth. just as he did today in denver when he said he wasn't telling the truth. he should have looked him in the eye and said mitt romney, you are not telling the american people the truth. and then proceed to walk through as clinton would have done the mathematics to prove it. i don't think romney would have been smart enough to figure
